I’m slacking a bit, last week was the Bloody Ludlow anniversary.

97 years ago. A lot can happen in that time, yes? Unions finally getting some decent wage and safety laws going, public education, health care, pensions... Then people got complacent, and the Anti-Worker Greed Heads take back power, just enough to put us back almost to 1914. They say "Oh, but the Unions are Corrupt, everybody knows that! Look at all the RICO complaints the FBI investigates." Yeah, sure. Anybody can file a RICO complaint and the FBI would be compelled to investigate it, even if they notice it's Bullshit after the first phone call to the complainant. So there are Corporate Lawyers, the ones who will clean the latrines in Hell, who make more money in a week than a worker makes in a year just filing RICO complaints. Talk about your Frivolous Lawsuits. Why don't the Tort Reform Activists get on THEIR ass? Ouch... That's Right, I almost forget, it's because THEY'RE THE SAME GOD-DAMN PEOPLE! The "Right To Work Law" advocates who tell us that if we just let Reagan be Reagan, take the "handcuffs" off of the Free Market and the Corporate Big Pigs will make sure that the workers will be well taken care of.

The Indiana State Legislature is following Wisconsin’s lead.

The R's pushing Union-busting and the D's walking out. Yowza. Our Democratic "Socialist" Governor, Hickenlooper, is looking at cutting public school K-12 budgets. BUT.... Nobody's talking about the R.T. phrase. As in, Really and Truly pay the damn bills. Industry makes beaucoup bux off having educated workers and public transportation and the niceties of a civilized society being available to everybody. Especially the workers who ultimately pay the highest tax, it's called Corporate Profit Margins and it's exacted on us without representation. No Official representation, that is, we still have plenty of police protection from the onerous task of Freedom, actually being allowed to pool our resources, our lives and our labor in collective bargaining in order to assure us an equitable wage, one that allows us to be paid at least what it costs US to produce our labor for the profit of the Rich. In Texas it's already illegal. We have to sacrifice OUR quality of life, OUR retirement, OUR health care and that of our children and grandchildren for generations to come, or so the Tea Party Anti Tax Crusaders tell us. Insuring continued profits for the Parasite Class on the backs of the Working Class, as always. The mill-workers backside
